girls in a cold apartment by the beach, a quick trip
a headache to end all headaches.
white soft and cold sand, like fingers pushed at feet
in boots, sandals, where the summer meets the fall.
quiet cape on the edge of the world the sun goes to sleep
sunsets and rises, feel like several, really only one of each
english and more english, slang and games of culture.
food to pull us together, a string that will break soon as some return.
and some don’t.
sometimes i get the most intense homesickness.
it’s not actually homesickness, it’s nostalgia, and a yearning for another place time and person.
it’s getting chilly outside, at night i’ve been wearing this big sweater the girl who lived in my room before left. I think it’s her boyfriend’s from the states.
I like living here, and i appreciate that Santiago has given me the chance to live in a large city full of life (and smog as it may be).
But sometimes i yearn for hardwood floors warm because of the floor below, windows with white crown molding around them, quilts my grandmother made my childhood bed, cinnamon buns that i didn’t make myself but still are homemade, walls that are warm when you touch them, eggs and bacon on a Sunday morning, chicken soup, grocery stores with everything that i want in them, speaking english to everyone, all the time, understanding things.
frustrating and eye opening weekend but over all very good.
I went to lollapoolza in Chile this weekend!
I saw Vampire Weekend and Lorde, as well as Cage the Elephant, and a couple other bands. I saw a bunch of them actually but most were ones my friends really liked. I was really there for those three bands. I also saw red hot chili peppers but they weren’t very good live, actually. I surprisingly saw nine inch nails and though I don’t like the music, the show itself was really good. Ellie Goulding was there as well.
Good first music festival, and now it’s monday at 11am and I went home early last night and I’m still exhausted.
